  1. Have: 2nd gen Snow x Gold - lineage Want: bloodswap Make an offer on my eggs/hatchlings!
  2. Ok, I'm trying to figure out the Solstice breeding, so I don't muck up my lineages (again :P) - basically, when they're bred during daytime in DC (sunny icon next to the clock) we get blue-winged ones and rosy-winged during nighttime, right?
  3. I wouldn't mind if frozen hatchies wouldn't count toward holiday scroll limits. They are unbreedable sprites and don't really have any 'value' (aside sentimental ones). If CB frozen hatchies wouldn't count toward scroll limit, it wouldn't disadvantage anyone, not even players who don't have any frozen CB's (like me) - if I suddenly wanted a frozen CB hatchie sprite, I could choose to release one of my CB adults, grab a new egg, hatch it and freeze the hatchie and then catch a new egg to raise to adulthood - and voila, I'd have a CB hacthie and all the adults spites too. Obviously I don't intend to do anything like this since I prefer freezing messies, but to each his own. Edited for typoes
  4. Man, the 5-min drop lasted for like 3 sec...
  5. I'm totally excited to hear about the Holiday biome, can't wait to get the holidays I missed. Also happy to see that the scroll limits are left in place, this will make it easier to catch these pretty dragons.
  6. Uhm... my 2 cents on the subject. While I'm among the playerbase that didn't get their favorite SA color, I grew very fond of mine and enjoy the challenge of creating lineages with them. I'm firmly against any suggestions that would enable already grown adults to change their color, because that would mess up a whole score of lineages (it would devastate lines like this) and be more troublesome then not. I'm also against yearly rotations of colors, that would cause way too many problems - in case we'll be getting CB's, some players would have to wait for up to 3 years in order to get their chosen Angel and as for bred eggs, we'd also have to wait for years in order to be able to breed perfect checkers, a downgrade from what we currently have. As for the 'breeding true' idea... also no thanks, this would mean you couldn't do alternating lines any more (which would be a shame, because there are many pretty ones out there). Also no random colors variants on growing up - scroll-fixed colors worked so far, it's very predictable, I know what I'm getting and that's the way I like it. A BSA that would give me the power to influence not yet hatched eggs to be of a wing-color of my choosing is the best option so far. I also wouldn't really care if hatchling got a BSA to control their own wing color, I haven't noticed it'd been stated anywhere that hatchlings can't have a BSA, it's just something that's never been implemented yet... frankly, I don't see what's so gamebreaking about it. Adult or hatchling BSA, I wouldn't care either way, both are good. And the BSA's effect should wear off when abandoning the egg, but not the influenced hatchie (like withe the Pink's BSA)..
  7. I'd love this feature, Storm dragons would be the perfect choice for it too.
  8. I'd be perfectly content with a scroll limit of 2 CB's per scroll if I get the chance of getting old CB Christmas and Valentine dragons. The way it was handled during Halloween was great, with plenty of days to hunt for any type of dragon one could desire and everyone got an equal chance of getting them.
  9. 1x infinity% support! With the current way "Select A Dragon" list works the Groups feature is almost useless to me - I have thousands of dragons on my scroll and picking each one by name (or code, as not all of them are named) is pretty much impossible (or way too time consuming). Dragons being arranged in scroll order would be very helpful - at the very least I'd know what I'm looking at.
  10. I was never really bothered by Valentines and X-mas dragons having a single gender (with the rare exceptions that I know I need to watch out for), it's always been like this and I accepted it as a part of a game. It doesn't really interfere in lineage making as it's a simple, predictable rule. You know exactly what you're dealing with and simply work with what you're given... in a way it's a relief knowing exactly the gender of dragons you're going to get, without using a BSA... until this topic came up I never ever considered this was something that needed fixing. While I personally wouldn't be bothered by having both genders if TJ (and the spriters) decided it should be so - rising the limit would be a must here of course, because otherwise we'd have to decide between releasing one of our beloved original holidays and one of the new gender, which... just wouldn't be cool to me. I would be also quite worried if spriters felt that with an additional gender and a possible new sprite to represent it they'd need to update the existing one (and I'm sure that's a scenario that could come true) - if that happened, my lineages that I worked hard on for years simply wouldn't be the same anymore. So if this idea was ever implemented, a lot should be taken into account, as this has a huge potential to cause plenty of problems. Basically, I can only see this working if: - TJ decides to add a 2nd gender (duh :P) + it would be nice if the spriters agreed to this as well - raise the limits (minimally 4) - keep the original sprites the same + if deciding for dimorphism, add an additional sprite without changing the original's pose
  11. Love the look of the hatchies and am super excited to see how they turn out as adults. <3
  12. It probably got too many unique views with the hatcheries being so busy and everyone constantly adding more eggs and giving views. I also never worry about eggs that have 4 days or less getting sick, but apparently even they aren't safe during holidays (not that there's a whole lot to be done here other that casting Ward on them and even that only offers protection for 6 hrs). Sorry to hear about your egg, I hope you catch something just as nice!
  13. The dragons I still haven't seen are CB Vampires - do those drop too?
  14. After a few days I went out to catch some Zombie fodder, clicked on what I thought was Alpine biome and finally caught on that there's a brand new Halloween section. So super hyped now, I never imagined I'd have the chance to catch the holiday dragons of the past!
  15. I'd love to have this option, I'm currently trying to somehow sort my dragons into a CB-only group and it's pretty challenging. While I have a lot of named dragons with prefixes that mark their CB status, this is not the case for all my dragons and with a huge scroll like mine (I have a little over 8000 dragons) it's very slow going. So, having this oprion would be neat. Also, having an option to sort dragons by generation (2nd, 3rd gent etc.) would be pretty sweet too, I believe it would come in handy for helping displaying lineages of various generations.
  16. I love both new releases, thanl you to everyone involved!
  17. Love all three adults, lovely addition to the hybrid team!
  18. Just found out about the new release - love the look of the hatchlings, they look great! Off to breed my pairs... Thank you TJ and artists for a lovely, relaxed release!
  19. Adding my thoughts on the 11th DC birthday celebration: - New Trophy + Egg Slots - awesome, been waiting fir this for years! - Raffle - while I'd still vastly prefer to have the shop implemented and not having to rely on luck (which, in my case, s pretty much nonexistent ), new mobthly Prizes are a very welcome addition and will perhaps make the market a bit more ballanced - Ward - was really excited for this one, but now not really all that much. First, its duration is too short, if you ward yor eggs and go to sleep/work/whatever, 6hrs is not really all that much time; 2nd, it can only be used once and this further limits its usefulnes, because eggs take a bit more then 6 hrs to hatch (shocking, I know ) and can get sick on multiple occasions; 3rd, the effect wears off immediately after hatching, but the sickness remains, so now we have an unprotected sick hatchie that may still die. Basically, a good idea for a BSA, but needs some modifying for it to be truly useful. - New Vampires - the sprites are lovely and I like them a lot. The circuimstances of their creation not so much... I understand the reasoning and the need for secrecy in releases such as this, but it's not really nice to have 2 groups of people working on updating the same sprite, especially when knowing only one's work would actually be implemented. A short post on the non-official-artist's thread along the lines of: "If we ever decide to update the Vampire Sprite it will be done by in-Cave artists.", would let people know they can focus on other projects and not bother with creating a sprite that would never have a chance of being implemented, while also keeping an element of surprise. Yes, there would probably be unhappy people then, but one can't make everyone happy. - Groups - another welcome and awesome addition, but needs a couple of more updates to make it easier to use (for example, beibg able to add multiple dragons, having the dragons in 'Select a dragon' section of gropus match the order of dragons on one's scroll - I have no idea why all dragons are mixed there ... there's probably more I could suggest, but I'm waiting to see what Custom sorting brings). - New Dragons - They're ok, not my cup of tea, but the spriters did a fine job and the new dragons look nice. The Power Rangers theme does nothing for me as I never watched the show growing up (not that it wasn't on TV, but it never caught my attention), but DC had many differently themed dragons and variety is what makes the game for me. I hope this type of creativity is also allowed to shine in Dragon Request section. Overall, it was a major release with a ton of added features, thank you to everyone involved!
  20. Lol, they could even use their BSA to summon him! Now I want a Captain Planet type dragon on my scroll... but that'll never happen... right?
  21. It's a lindwurm, there a a couple already in Cave (Blusangs for example and other lindwurms on DC Wiki).
  22. These are some fine looking sprites, the artist truly outdid themselves! They're not really my cup of tea since I never watched Power Rangers growing up and so the theme doesn't do much for me, but I'm more then happy to add them to my collection of dragons. I like the blue ones the best, with yellows and whites at close 2nd. I wonder what kind of dragons they assemble into or perhaps summon - some weirdly awesome mega-zoid-dino-dragon thingy I assume.
